I was just perusing the sticker sheet from the figure stands 40 pack and was startled to see that Fixer has a sticker. Lukes mate Fixer. from the same deleted scene as Biggs in academy uniform. I can't really take that in. someone say it was a joke by hasbro or a misprint.

are we really getting a second Tosche station dweller for farmboy Luke to attack with his legions of really bad clones? Will fixer have his modified XP-34 landspeeder with the five engines? That Camie and Deak are gonna happen too?

no no someone slap me I'm getting hysterical here.

Fixer huh.............? Hmmmmmm.

That is EXACTLY what I thought, but one of the figures like Scorch is oddly also named Fixer.

One of the characters from Republic Commado:

RC-1138 (Delta Three-Eight or "Boss")
RC-1140 (Delta Four-Oh or "Fixer")
RC-1207 (Delta Oh-Seven or "Sev")
RC-1262 (Delta Six-Two or "Scorch")

Fixer the clone is a lot more likely - but less interesting somehow. I've watched that long deleted Luke on Tatooine bit, but don't recall Fixer. Was he a character in the book?

Here is a link to Laze Loneozner (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Laze_Loneozner), better known as "Fixer".

Here is the Republic Commando (http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Delta_40).

Oooooh cruel world how you mock me with with your duplicitous nature........

ok so I reckon it's about time we got Fixer though. Him and Deak and Camie and that five engined speeder.

It's similar to whenever they announce a new Mace and I get excited hoping it's a figure of Cindel's brother...but it turns out to just be another Master Windu. :bored:

Oh say it isn't so! I was hoping this was Luke's friend from the deleted scene. Bummer.

Actually, I would LOVE a Fixer figure. Luke's friend that is. A Camie and Deak set would be sweet too. The more Tatooine dwellers the better. Would be great background characters for scene building also.

Fixer camie Deak and Windy would make a sweet exclusive. not that I condone exclusives but in this case i think it would have to be. just an old fashioned cinema scene set. throw in Biggs as well and a Luke because you just know they would. give it a tosche station interior backdrop and bingo.

although, I can't ever recall seeing any pics of Deak and windy like costume reference shots. the only image i have is a still from the cut footage looking past camie and fixer through the partition wall window to biggs deak and windy playing pool. anyone ever seen pics of deak and windy? anyone know who played them?

oooh i just thought, the deleted scenes were included in the Marvel comic adaptation. technically Fixer, Camie deak and Windy could fit into that criteria. Two comics 2-packs. Or at the very least the Fixer and Camie one with issue one or two of the marvel comic. Give fixer a couple of engineering tools and maybe one of the little crate things from around the back of Tosche station. Camie doesn't really need to come with any accessories.

Incidentally I grabbed this image of Deak and Windy does anyone have a better copy? or can grab one with whizzy software? I only have PowerDVD by cyberlink and it doesn't really facilitate decent screen grabs. Or are there behind the scenes pics of the two dudes somewhere?

I was thinking about that red headed kid in TPM...didn't Qui-Gon call him Fixer ?

That's Seek. The one with the monotone voice. And no facial expression. :tired:

my brain hurts. if there was any irony or humour in your post caesar I've totally failed to pick up on it.

Incidentally i love the way biggs is licking his lips in this pic. looking at Luke and licking his lips. hmmm........

Actually no humor intended, I thought I remembered Qui-Gon saying "come on Fixer" to that red headed kid but thinking about it some more I think I confused it with "come on Kitster."

So then Seek is the one who said "Come on, let's go and play Bolf" ?

Very nice ! Bonus points to Biggs for also having his hands on his belt doing the Declan the Human Jabba "Have you now?" thrust. lol

would love to get Fixer with his XP-38 as well as Camie and Deak and Windy. Hey Hasbro give us our Tosche Station playset so our Academy Biggs has some companions.

I mean we already have a new Tatoonie Luke, the moisture vaporater, Luke's landspeeder, a T-16 Skyhooper and the TAC Academy Biggs, jawas, lin droid, the multiarm droid from the Saga line, power droids, now we need the rest of the figures to make a cool collections of Tosche Station

I'd say the spider armed treadwell, Jerba beast of burden, Fixer's speeder and the four Tosche station unmade characters should cover it.

The Jerba can be seen through the window, opposite side to the speeder. The treadwell just before Biggs is telling Luke of his plans to jump ship.

the speeder is easy, just slap two more engines on Luke's speeder. (this speeder is also seen in TPM pootling round Mos Espa) and shove an engine cowelling on the right side engine.

The Jerba is seen in ANH by the cantina so there's a double reason for justifying it. And even though all this is from a cut scene it's an iconic one for many and says tatooine far more than any CGI'ed nonsense added in for the special edition. In my mind t makes more sense to do the Tosche station characters than Dash Rendar and his Outrider.
Doing Tosche station characters would also give an excuse to re-release the T-16 skyhopper vehicle with a pack in Womp rat to bullseye. Once for Luke and once for Biggs with a re-deco.
I mean we're talking about characters that helped shape Luke's personality who probably encountered Ben Kenobi on numerous occasions, these characters are important to luke even if lucas did cut them from the movie.

Vote Tosche station NOW! Big up the Tosche station posse!
